UV PROTECTION: WHAT DOES UPF 40 MEAN?
The UPF index (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) corresponds to tests carried out on fabric by a spectrophotometer.
UPF 40 means that only 1/40th of UV rays penetrate the fabric, one of the highest protection levels against UV rays.
MAXIMUM COVERAGE AGAINST UV RAYS
To reduce the risk of harmful damage from the desert sun, this shirt is designed to ensure maximum skin coverage:
> Long sleeves cut at an angle at the cuff to protect your hands
> Turn-up collar to cover the back of your neck
To manage the heat more effectively in the desert, this shirt is made with a lightweight fabric and the loose fit has air vents at the front and back.
As a result, the fabric does not stick to the skin, lets air circulate and reduces perspiration. The back vents do not work with a backpack sitting on the back. The Desert 500 backpack lets the back vents work correctly.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
The entire design team made several trips to the desert (Sahara in Morocco, Wadi Rum in Jordan) to design the most suitable products for trekking in the desert. This involved a series of tests and subsequent modifications to ensure that your future treks in the desert are as pleasant as possible.
